“I wish I could do better by you,
Cause that’s what you deserve.
You sacrifice so much of your whole life,
In order for this to work.
While I’m off chasing my own dreams,
Sailing around the world,
Please know that I’m yours to keep,
My beautiful girl.
When you cry a piece of my heart dies,
Knowing that I may have been the cause,
If you were to leave, fulfil someone else’s dreams,
I think I might totally be lost.
You don’t ask for no diamond rings,
No delicate string of pearls,
That’s why I wrote this song to sing,
My beautiful girl.”
Happy Birthday, Evelyne. I love you.
